Petach 61

מ”ה היה מחבר עמו כל המדרגות שהיה מתברר [נ”א, מתחבר] מב”ן, ומהם היה עושה כל האילן של הקדושה, דהיינו אבי”ע. אך נשארו עוד מדרגות מב”ן שלא נתחברו עם מ”ה. ועל כן לא נשלמה עדיין הבריאה, שיש בה כמה חסרונות, וזה הולך ונתקן מעט מעט, עד שיהיה נתקן הכל, ויהיה הכל בשלמות:

 MaH, which is to say, the lights of the “forehead”, which represent eventual perfection, had all the levels that were selected from BaN, which came about as a result of the Shevira process and represents imperfection, connected to it, and out of it were produced the “Tree of Holiness”, which is to say, the various of Partzufim of Atzilut, and the worlds of Briah, Yetzirah, and Assiyah.

But other levels of BaN that weren’t attached to MaH remained behind in Atzilut, Briah, Yetzirah, and Assiyah, so creation wasn’t complete given there were still a number of deficiencies. Nonetheless this connection of MaH and Ban will eventually be rectified step by step to the point where everything will be repaired and in a state of perfection.
